Why the English Submission to William the Conqueror at Berkhamsted Still Matters
A talk by Professor David Bates
at The Old Hall, Berkhamsted School on Friday 7th April at 7.30pm
A new insight into the Norman Conquest and the English surrender at Berkhamsted will be given in a talk by an eminent historian in the town in April.
Following his unveiling of a bronze bust of William, commemorating the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, Professor David Bates is making good his offer to return and speak about this historic event in greater detail.
Professor Bates, who holds the chair of medieval studies at the University of East Anglia, has just published a new biography, William the Conqueror. In his talk he will describe how there are still lessons to be learned from the event which changed English history forever.
After the talk Professor Bates will invite questions from the audience and sign copies of his book, which will be on sale.
There will also be another chance to see the bust, which will be exhibited at the school.
Tickets for the event are priced £5 for adults and free of charge to students, to include refreshments.
